well 8 of you in a Cuddle tent?
I'm gonna just make a few stabs in the dark ;)
3 of you are female, one is the head woman her boy friend is the camp tool, the other couple is about to break up (she knows it, he doesn't) She would have told him before burn but he bought the ticket and has all the drugs. Girl number 3 will be too distracted playing two of the guys against each other to notice that the other one is Gay. The Gay guy is the only one that's going to have a good time, he'll spend most of his time in the Gayberhood, sleeping in A/C RV's and being treated like a queen.
At least 4 of you has dreads, prolly the same 4 that have an aversion to soap and water. At least 3 of you has herpes, but the dehydration and sun burn will hide it. One of you lied about how much gas money they brought you will not discover this until the ride home; but hey what's another lie? prolly was the same one that told you the sores were 'chapped lips'. One if not all of you is a self-described EDM Fan NOT A RAVER!!! One of you is a DJ (but in reality has no turntables, only a shitty fx box and an Ipod) one of you will wear glitter spray and that means all of you will be wearing glitter spray. in the Spirit of gifting and interactivity your camp will make supper yummy vegan gluten free Spelt/Okra/Pumpkin no bake muffins, to gift out to your neighbors who's beers you've been sucking down all week.

Nah, you guys will be alright! just be sure to burn over there *points to the opposite side of BRC*

I've learned so much while co-organizing a theme camp that I'm scrambling for members 10 days from the event. Lets hope I learn from being the full blown organizer!

Honestly, considering that I'm a virgin myself, I never imagined that all these completely unprepared and clueless virgins suddenly coming out of the woodwork would upset me so much. I roll my eyes harder and harder every time I read a new post; don't be surprised if they roll right off my face. If I were to find myself in their same predicaments, I would be too embarrassed to post the kind of stuff I've been reading. Do research, fellow newbies! This isn't like deciding to go to Coachella at the last minute! Gah, I know I'm riding a high horse here and need to get down, or at least block the ticket board if I want to continue visiting ePlaya and still keep my sanity.

No, especially if you were writing pretty much the same exact posts just a year ago!

I can't say this enough, but you have to have a pretty sad life to refer to somewhere you've never been as "home". You don't even know if you'll like it or not, stop burying it in your expectations. Gah. :roll:

Thank you for the compliment, Eric. It especially means a lot coming from a guy who has a whole Q&A thread created for/dedicated to him because he's so knowledgeable in matters both practical and incredibly silly. :D

I could be wrong, but my guess is that advertising that you are extremely unorganized and probably just now made the decision to go to BM is not the best way to be invited to join a theme camp. Or maybe just mentioning that you're fun and down to earth will do the trick? Beats me.

Awesome. My first year, I was told I was the most prepared virgin ever. I didn't feel at all prepared. Eplaya was and is a life-changing godsend. I researched my ass off. Google, people. GOOGLE. Stay on that high horse, throw some EL wire on it, and wave to the thirsty, sunburnt masses as you ride by on your way to the MnG.
